Entry I did for a zine. It was inspired by an advertisement I liked for Plan 9 from Outerspace that I really responded to. I just really liked how everything was sort of stacked on top of each other, and decided to do something similar only with many different sci fi movie titles. I wanted to sort of create my own sci fi flick, a mix mash of all the movies combined. This was the result.

I was stumped for a long time of what to make Laura's card like, but when the dicuts failed, I turned to my 50's housewife catalogue. Who is more 50's housewife than Laura, NO ONE! I made the text a little 3d by using shreds of decoupaged illustration board.

Taken in my apartment in Chicago this summer, I've noticed something about nearly every piece of clothing I own...
I really only enjoy toothpaste color schemes.

When I went to see Everything is Terrible: 2 Fast 2 Furious Tokyo Drift in Chicago, I got to see a few awesome clips from this movie, Aerobicide: Killer Workout. It seems in the 80's slasher films evolved into subgenres for everyone, including aerobics. So put on your headbands, leg warmers, and prepare to get murdered!
The cookie diet? WTF?
Even though murders at Rhonda's Gym are at an alltime high, that doesn't stop her customers from wanting to have sexy bods!
Killer Workout has a Killer soundtrack.
It's got a sweet VHS cover too. You won't be able to tell if this is a slasher flick, or a porno!
This pink one gets around, despite her corn-like teeth, and this soccer mom looking one is in nearly every shot!
Guys, Rhonda's got a secret...
She burnt 75% of her body in a derranged tanning bed accident, and now takes out her despair on men and women at her gym that have "perfect bods" Don't worry, there's plenty of scarred up booby action for the gents.

I don't know what eighties movies these clips are from, but I want to see them all. 1:51 is my fave part, with the sexy blonde taking pictures of the other sexy blonde on that old poloroid camera.
Washed Out has more of that Chill Wave sound, but they kind of remind me of Thieves Like Us.
They even have similar album covers.
They even have similar album covers.
This one is a little bit more fun, but I feel like the dancers don't really go to the music.
Whatever, it's that eighties sound that keeps me wanting migrate to the 1983 cosmic dancefloor.
Maybe it's trendy, but I'm feelin the chill wave vibe. Maybe I'm just a sucker for anything that ends in wave, new wave, dark wave, and now chill wave.
I must say it's good to be back in Texas. I had a blast in Chicago, saw/did some amazing things, got to explore a big city on my own for once, but Texas was calling. I miss it when I'm away, and it's funny because I remember from High School-College all I ever wanted to do was "get out of this shit hole!"
I remember hating all the stereotypical things, like cowboy hats, big belt buckles, big fake blonde hair, redneck tans, hot as an oven summer weather, cowboy boots, etc, the list could go on forever.
But Now I actually think that stuff is kind of cool. I wont be sporting a cowboy hat, or boots, but I think of Texas as more of a plastic cliche now. When I think of the state, I think of: Westerns! The lone Ranger! rattlesnakes, cactus gardens, plastic cowboys and indians, Shiner Beer, and putting lonestars on EVERYTHING IN SIGHT!
Texas is a badass state. Between Austin and Dallas there are so many oddities for me to discover.
Just yesterday I went to a pool called "The Fraternity of the Eagle" which was out in the woods by the lake, pretty much secluded from everything else. It had this old country vibe. They call it the "Trailer Park of Country Clubs" There was a stuffed marlin on the wall of the club house, they had rafts of various shapes and sizes for people to float around in. The best part? You could buy beer there! I had a great time! Just lounging in the sun, drinking Lonestar, and meeting new people.
This isn't a post saying I'm never going to leave Texas, that isn't true. But it is a blog post saying that I'm appreciating what it has to offer for the very first time.
